Kansas 2nd District Republican Rep. Lynn Jenkins says she will leave her seat at the end of this term and explore jobs in the private sector.
There have been rumors about her running for Kansas governor in 2018, as Gov. Sam Brownback's second term will be ending. In a statement, Jenkins seems to put those rumors to rest.
"I will not be running for any office in 2018. In two years, at the conclusion of this Congress, I plan to retire and explore opportunities to return to the private sector, allowing a new citizen legislator to step up and serve Kansans," Jenkins says.
